Visited BT's for a barbeque fix, wasn't sure what to order and took advice from the girl at the counter, she recommended one of the plates where you choose three meats, and have corn bread plus two sides, we chose ribs, pulled pork and brisket and added a portion of fries and onion rings.

We stopped here on a Sunday. WE got the triple pig ??... we used a 10% checkin coupon from yelp so saved a bit. It was MORE than enough food for my very hungry boyfriend and me. The pulled pork was amazing, brisket was delicious -- BF said ribs were great... (I'm not a fan personally in general). The highlight... More

I've been to Kansas City, Austin (TX), and other BBQ hotbeds. This place is comparable to any of them. I got the pulled pork, which is my go to for judging a BBQ place. It was phenomenal, bits of moist pork mixed with bits of crunchiness. They offer multiple sauces to cater to your tastes and I tried all of... More

Stopped in after a morning of antiquing...Good Choice. We each tried something different and passed it all around. The brisket was wonderful, ribs flavorful and tender, and the pulled pork was a hit. Nice selection of sauces, and wonderful lemonade. Would have given 5 stars if the staff hadn't been so surly!

I'm from NC and have eaten Southern BBQ all my life. This place is among the best I've ever had. And a good value at the same time for a hungry family. Excellent for after visiting OSV!

I stopped here when leaving the area for home to get my husband some authentic barbecue, which he has been craving. The joints in our area are mediocore at best. So after reading reviews of this place, I gave it a shot. It is mostly a take-out place, but you can eat in as well. The service was quick and... More

Two of us shared the Pig Trip Platter ($36). More than enough food for two (we brought some home). The ribs were terrific. Great bark. Very good pulled pork and brisket. If you don't like your meats charred, you may not be happy here. Sides were adequate. Slaw and potato salad were good but the beans left something to be... More

The pork ribs at BT smokehouse were simply delicious. Sturbridge is a small little town with this hidden gem of a restaurant. The restaurants is simple and small, but the ribs a finger licking good. No sauce is really needed. The sides are ok, but the ribs are great. The prices are reasonable and the staff were friendly.
